I know it seems like we've abandoned this blog completely, but trust me. We have lots (and I mean lots) more house to do.
It's just that some serious shidt has happened, my friend.
My husband Joe recently became extremely ill, seemingly out of nowhere, and we spent a week and a half in Columbia Memorial here in Hudson (most of it in ICU). He's home now, and although he's still very ill, he's getting stronger every day.
His diagnosis is Lyme disease, although he has tested negative for it (and everything else under the sun). But since he is responding to the treatment so well, we are inclined to accept the diagnosis. At least for now.
In case you are interested - Joe was bitten by a tick and went to the health department with the culprit in a zip lock bag. There, he was given a dose of antibiotics (which is the normal protocol had he taken the tick to a doc). Joe never developed the telltale bulls eye rash or any other symptoms within the one month period we were told to watch for signs.
But two moths later, he was suddenly deathly ill and became completely incoherent (which lasted for days).
If you'd like to learn more about it - or are interested in helping out (surprise! We have no health insurance)

We will be back blogging once we can once again focus on fun stuff like pain chips and bead board.
